>now there is fashion on "euro-style money"
That Russian note really does look like a Euro. I suppose it's natural for currency designs to follow trends, and banks actually have a reason to design notes we'll find beautiful. Studies have found a positive correlation between the aesthetic appreciation of a note, and knowledge of its security features. Banks try to make money beautiful so we'll look at it a little longer and, as a consequence, will remember things like microprinting and watermarks.

Ours were printed in EU, so it's no wonder. The coins look Euro-ish too. I think that our current bills are the best-looking of all we ever had, so I don't really mind.

You describe a vicious circle there. Right now it is actually pretty cheap to advertise on facebook and also easy to target a very specific audience there. So more and more people and about every new startup gives them their monies. If this continues and nothing will ever get people driven away from that cancer, Zuckerberg will get a complete monopoly on web advertising, which will also probably be the only way of advertising that reaches anyone anymore. Well, aside from Google of course.

Well, web advertising is not the same as it used to be anyways. The most successful campaigns are those that people don't recognize as such. So it wouldn't even matter if FB would monopolize the regular text/display ads (which it de facto does). Though as you say it has to share the pie with Google for the most part, and for certain niches other channels still work better.
>>18131
Eh, FB had a bit of a slump some months ago, but it's recovering now (see stock price). It's not going away for now I think.
Though the whole online advertising field is bound to crash some time, it already seems way too bloated. On the other hand there are still tons of small businesses out there that don't really use digital advertising so in many cases there's an opportunity to leverage it.

I read an article by Quention Meillassoux on speculation and correlationism basically Kants transcendental philosophy, the latter is object of critique. It's funny but frustrating at the same time when university taught you good pattern recognition in difficult texts, like: what seems an important statement to mark and which is uninteresting, strains of an argument that don't need to be marked. I cannot say I really understood what he wanted to say other than it's possible to abandon correlationism. Correlationsim means that we cannot think an absolute or outside of thought because our thoughts are always in relation to the things, they are relational and not separated from us. Meillssoux says it's possible to think an outside, for him, a naive proof would be to say that science has a subject that deals with data from a time before humans came into existence, so there must be something that exist without thought. But I got lost on the way from where he leaves this naive argument behind and unfolds his rather complex argument.

Thanks, I'll remember that. I did a test this morning and the temperature of 1 cup of boiling water, left to rest for 3 minutes, dropped 30°F(17°C). If I put the black tea in first, and then wait a few minutes before adding the green, that should work.

So I am generally a huge name nerd, always have been. But lately, the trends really puzzle me.

I mean - I'm aware that I'm looking at american ones, but it starts getting absolutely sad. Yeah, I know, I as a Germanic shouldn't complain about noun-names, since we have Wolf and Björn and similar. But at least they go together with the wish of transferring the spiritual qualities of the animal to the child. Or maybe Friedrich - meaning full of piece. That's nice and cozy and something you can wish for your child.

But that? Are those people serious? In America, of all places, calling your child Soldier? That's only one step ahead of naming your kid flat out Gun, what I'm sure has happened already.

For girls, the same applies. I mean I can get behind "Virtue" names like Hope even though I think they're absolutely retarded. But Lace? Owl? Are they serious? We live in an age where we can really search the world's history for the most beautiful and meaningful words and the americans go like "Guess I'll name my kid after a piece of cloth x--D"

And don't even get me started with the retarded double name trend. It even starts seeping here. Some name fit even for developmental troubles like Finn or Ben or Sam, and then a retarded middle name, and whenever the child is referred to, you use both names. Back in my day, we had a baptismal name that is supposed to refer to the Virtues of a Saint, and it's sort of secret and occult, and now people use the "double name" as an excuse to smuggle even more retarded names in there. And they seem proud of it.

>Does the name "Siegfried" carry any negative connotations with it?
not at all. it's a really really old name and kinda rarely used, however it doesn't sound totally out of place like adalbert, traugott, fürchtegott, gotthilf, gottlob, bartholomäus etc. who knows, siegfried might come into fashion again. i used to have an ukrainian immigrant neighbour who named his son wilhelm, which was quite uncommon/out of fashion at that time. today it's probably not so uncommon anymore, i hear kids getting named gunther/günther, theo, oskar, which were also popular 100 years ago. i'm ok with those. also, even though they sound like dog names to me, fiete, malte, fynn might become classic in the future, because they are kinda neutral. trend names such as kevin, leon, justin, liam are completely retarded though, these go out of fashion within 20 years and will sound funny or in the worst case put a stigma on the kids when they are grown up men. ultimately retarded is in my opinion when you're not jewish, muslim, hindu etc. but you give your children exotic names such as ben, noah, levy (i just checked, according to mainstream newspapers they are supposed to be trend names right now), mohammed, kerim or something like that.

I'd concur that like everything reminiscent of Germanic heritage it carries some vague connection to the Nazis so no modern German in his right mind would call his child anything like that. According to this statistic without any source that I randomly pulled from the internet after 2 minutes of research Siegfried as a name was most popular during the 1930s, at least during the 20th century.

>>17905
>ernst please. pic related.

Afaik most younger people are only dimly aware of it as it's not commonly read in school. And especially Wagner is also associated with some Nazi aesthetics, which are not particularly hip of course. This is why in recent times e.g. the Nibelungenspiele Worms adaptations were trying really hard to embrace a progressive agenda which is more akin to persiflage.
I haven't looked much into it but the titles seem already telling: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nibelungenfestspiele_Worms

Judging by that graph, id didn't go out of fashion well into the 60s, so it's not like it became taboo like "Adolf" did.
My idea was that it has negative associations because how Wagner was adored by the Natsoc government, and Wagner was quite the assburger when it came to the name and the epic itself.

Nah for sure not as bad as Adolf. As mentioned I'd take the graph with a grain of salt, also judging by the weird zigzags at the end. But it does seem plausible that it went out of fashion in th 60s as I'd be hard pressed to think of any person named Siegfried. I suppose colloquially it's also often shortened to Siggi which sounds kind of horrible but less out of place in a modern context.

Since an acre is defined as a chain by a furlong (i.e. 66 ft × 660 ft or 20.12 m × 201.17 m), an acre-foot is 43,560 cubic feet (1,233 m3).

Dick length units. I'm pretty sure we don't have those. And instead of metric or imperial "well is it elven or orkish standard?"

I guess it depends on the setting. For a modern western or most developed world unit a couch would be a good measure of length. For an incredibly useless, tedious, and archaic temperature how about BpS, bubbles per second of boiling water? If you don't care about quality I'm sure there's plenty of gold units left.

I'd say it's much too late to reverse it now.
If you manage to get him down to the size where he can walk, he'll just get more food for himself.
And of course you can't relinquish your care completely, because he's overdependent on his father for everything.
That man is both mentally and physically ruined for the rest of his sorry life.

The reason? The father divorced, and when the "strict" mother kicked out the son, he wanted to show his virtues by granting him everything.
The truth is, the game was rigged from the start.

If I would ever move to Berlin in 1-2 years I would probably only go on Sunday afternoons because of reasons. But I would meet an Ernst then probably.

The line up is quite nice. I've seen Moerbeck doing a set in my town. So great, I still look for one track he played, the other two that made me go over the top on MDMA have been found. Perc is more a name to me, already an older one. I hate models is great big room stomper stuff. Funnily I would rather attempt Griessmühle then Berghain, the door policy is not worth the hassle even tho I think I could get in style wise without problems.

Right now I spin a Miss Djax set from the Loveparade of 1995

>eaters of the dead
i really love the film adaption of crichton's book called "the 13th warrior", starring antonio banderas. great film with a great atmosphere, although a surviving neanderthal colony in the early high middle ages as antagonists in the story is far from what historians would consider possible. the last known homo s. n. colony died on the iberian peninsula during the würm ii/iii glacial/interstadial, that is roughly about 35,000 years ago before the dawn of the neolithicum and bronze age. i'm aware wer'e talking about fantasy settings, however i'm afraid that real history of humankind (in europe) as inspiration doesn't has a lot to offer for epic rpg lore involving both homo n. and homo s., since during the paleolithic either were still nomadic hunters and gatherers using only stone tools. it would have to be a 100% "barbarian" setting, which could still be interesting though. it could involve locations and lore on sunken territory.
